4 Tricks For Windows 7 Password

If you’ve just updated to Windows 7 from Windows Vista or Windows XP, please remember to add a strong password to protect your PC from authorized users. The following are 4 simple tips if you intend to set a Windows 7 password.

1. Create a strong password

Using a strong password is among the most important steps you can take to protect your computer from hackers and unauthorized users. For a strong password, it should be 8 characters long at least, consisting of letters, numbers and symbols. Please never set a common password like “123456″ and “abcdef”.

Step 1. Open the User Accounts window by clicking Start button, Control Panel, Family Safety and User Accounts, User Accounts.

Step 2. Click on Create a password for your account link.

Step 3. Type your password, type it again to confirm, type a hint and then click the Create button.

2. Make a password reset disk

When you forgot Windows 7 password, a password reset disk allows you to change the lost password to a new one in seconds so that you can access computer files again. The only problem is that you have to create the disk before your password is forgotten. Otherwise, you have to look for other solutions to resolving your problem.

Step 1. Open the User Accounts window by clicking Start button, Control Panel, Family Safety and User Accounts, User Accounts.

Step 2. In the left pane, click Create a password reset disk, and then follow the instructions.

Tip: Make sure you store the disk in a safe place as everyone can use the disk to log on your computer if he can get physical access to it.

3. Change your password regularly

A good password is the first line of defense against those who wish to gain access to our computers and the important data they contain. But you can keep your PC more secure by changing your password on a regular basis.

Step 1. Press CTRL+ALT+DELETE, and then click Change a password.

Step 2. Type your old password, type a new one, type it again to confirm, and then press ENTER.

4. Bypass lost Windows 7 password

The easiest way to bypass lost Windows 7 password is to use the reset disk as mentioned above. But many users forgot to create such a disk in advance. Under this circumstance, the most effective solution to solving the problem is to seek for a third-party tool, like Windows Password Recovery Tool which allows you to instantly perform Windows 7 password recovery by creating a bootable USB/CD/DVD in 5 minutes.
